Watching People Leap Over This Giant Puddle Is The Best Internet Entertainment

We can't look away!

Forget Netflix: A heroic company is currently livestreaming a gigantic puddle in the United Kingdom that pedestrians are struggling to cross.

Drummond Central, a marketing firm based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, is using Twitter's Periscope app to broadcast live video of the puddle -- which appears to be the size of a small country -- as passersby come up with creative ways to get around it.

Some people leap over the puddle. Others climb around it. And some brave souls just walk on through.

At press time, over 19,000 people were viewing the feed, which is available on Internet browsers in addition to the Periscope app on Android and iOS.

Of course, this isn't the first time Periscope has been used to broadcast live footage of a global news event. In November, people used Periscope to live stream the streets of Paris during the terrorist attacks, and CNN has used the app during events like the birth of the royal baby.
